This paper proposes another use of the Differential transform method (DTM) in obtaining approximate solutions to nonlinear partial differential equations (PDEs). The idea here is that a PDE can be converted to an ordinary differential equation (ODE) upon using a wave variable, then applying the DTM to the resulting ODE. Three equations, namely, Benjamin-Bona-Mahony (BBM), Cahn-Hilliard equation and Gardner equation are considered in this study. The proposed method reduces the size of the numerical computations and use less rules than the usual DTM method used for multi-dimensional PDEs. The results show that this new approach gives very accurate solutions.
